In 2017 the visceral reaction to the sudden death of Ian was to produce a wine in his honour. This was a tiny batch of Pinot Noir drawn from a portion of the oldest Pinot vines on the property, and a third drawn from the newest MV6 young vines. This blend represented something of the snake eating its own tail – the Ouroboros or symbol for eternal cyclic renewal. In other words, recognition that Gembrook Hill had become a legacy vineyard for our family. The IJM, Ian James Marks, was made as a pure expression of site, matured in old French oak to allow terroir to shine through. A quintessential vigneron's wine, to reflect Ian's passion for the vineyard.

Fairly light colour with a bright, youthful purple/red hue. The bouquet is wonderfully perfumed; hauntingly fragrant, with strawberry, red cherry, floral notes. Full marks for pinosity. It's light to medium-bodied and intense, with a long carry. Delicious wine with very pure fruit. It has fine tannin, good structure and could live surprisingly well.

Huon Hooke

"It was 1983 when Ian and June Marks found their vineyard site after a long search for the perfect pocket of land throughout almost every wine region in Victoria. With views of Mt Donna Buang, a backdrop of the Warburton ranges, red soil and a coveted north-easterly aspect, it is the perfect spot for cool climate winemaking. Gembrook Hill led the way as part of the 'second wave' of Yarra Valley vignerons, and today is one of the oldest vineyards in the Upper Yarra sub-region."
